Hi Richard,

oddly, the debian.org-site works for me if I choose to not include any
of the information but the language in my User-Agent-header.  So when it
looks like:

  Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.5; de) KHTML/3.5.4 (like Gecko)

I get debian.org in german language.

And yes, I selected german as my preferred language in the kde control
center.  So something is going wrong here, either being the fault of
Konqueror or of debian.org.  Dunno.
